The Brothers of Baker Street, by Michael Robertson, B-plus, narrated by Simon Vance, produced by Blackstone Audio, downloaded from audible.com.

This is the second book in a series with the over-all theme that an attorney has taken up office space in the building now standing at the famous Baker Street address of the fictional Sherlock Holmes. Any barrister officing there has to agree, as part of the lease, to answer all letters which still come there addressed to Sherlock Holmes. Reggie, the attorney, doesn’t bother with this task and is scolded by the building management. This is the second book in the series. The case involves a solicitor who comes seeking Reggie’s help for a cab driver of London’s famous Black Cabs who is being accused of killing two American tourists. In fact, the Black Cabs are starting to get a bad reputation with increased crime. Reggie, even though he hasn’t taken a criminal case in several years, agrees to take this one and gets the driver off. But then someone else is killed and it appears that his original client did it, and then the client is killed and Reggie is suspected of killing his former client. But who is this solicitor, and why can’t she be found? And where did a letter in the Sherlock Holmes mailbag come from which appeared to be from Dr. James Morriarty? And will Nygel be able to get his brother, Reggie out of trouble? And will Reggie gain back the hand of Laura? This is an interesting book with a new twist on the Sherlock Holmes history. A nice easy escapist read, and Simon Vance as narrator was his usual stellar self.
